(si::gbc t) will collect everything.  One can also specify subsets of
memory to collect.

Everything should of course work without manual gc calls, but it is
quite common for lisp coders to deliberately collect the garbage when
they know they have generated a lot and want a small clean starting
point.  For example, ACL2 invokes before save-system, etc.

Take care,
